Description

This edition of the last book of the Bible takes the reader on a journey to the end of the world, as experienced by the visionary St John. The introduction looks at Revelation's interpretation and its influence on major motifs, images and literature. The Revelation of St John, otherwise known as The Apocalypse, is one of the most mysterious books of the Bible. Its vivid and lurid images - of gigantic angels, ghostly horsemen, multi-headed beasts, the bottomless pit, the Whore of Babylon, the battle of Armegeddon, the Last Judgement, and the New Jerusalem - have inspired writers and artists, such as Dante, Albrecht Durer, John Bunyan, John Milton and William Blake, and have informed the work of many others. The introduction is written by John Drane, the author of "Introducing the New Testament".show more
